Did you know that three million people in Australia are living with anxiety and depression?

My Story

Walking and Talking to Raise Awareness

We are walking 30km from Victor Harbor to Goolwa on the 20th September. This is an opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the amazing charity Beyond Blue.  

Beyond Blue is a fantastic organisation that supports people who have anxiety and depression.  This year, more than 215,000 people will contact Beyond Blue's 24/7 Support Service for advice.  One phone call with a counseller costs around $48.  There are over 3 million people in Australia experiencing anziety and depression and suicide rates are at a staggering ten-year high.

On a personal level we all have friends or family who have experienced or are experiencing these issues.  Some have accessed support services like Beyond Blue, others have received clinical support and many more are still uncertain whether they can reach out for help due to stigma, shame or feeling misunderstood.  It is for all these people that we will walk and talk.
